spanish-born architect patricia urquiola has designed ‘nub’, a seating object for spanish furniture manufacturer andreu world. the armchair and lounger is a graphic take on a traditional windsor chair consisting of spindles with undulating thicknesses. the idea came from urquiola watching her grandmother making lace with bobbins — the forms of which intrigued her from a young age.

the solid beech structures are made from reforested 100% sustainable wood, the only kind used by andreu world. steel or wood legs hold up the seat and over-sized back, resulting in unusual but playful proportions.  ‘nub’ was on show at salone del mobile during milan design week 2012.
